Wimbledon -- women's second-round matches

Kerber is a former world No. 1 and two-time Grand Slam champ.

Defending champion and third seed Garbine Muguruza is the latest big name to exit the All England Club. Muguruza, also a two-time Slam victor, faced a player who had advanced out of the second round at a major only once.

His early exit opens up Federer's path to the final even more, with No. 8 Kevin Anderson the highest-seeded player left in the Swiss star's half of the draw after number six Grigor Dimitrov lost in the first round.

Godina made the fourth round of a Grand Slam for the first time. You need to find your rhythm.

Angelique Kerber lets out a roar of delight during a tight match against last year's Wimbledon juniors champion Claire Liu.

In a match full of big swings, the 10th-seeded Keys led 5-2 in the first set before the 120th-ranked Rodina won the next nine games to go 4-0 up in the second.

The final set could easily have gone either way, with five successive break of serves, but it was the German who prevailed.

Argentina's Guido Pella believes his country can not win another major trophy in his lifetime, adding that the success of five-times world champions Brazil had only added to his gloom.

The American fought back from a set and two breaks down only to falter near the end as she lost to Russian qualifier Evgeniya Rodina 7-5, 5-7, 6-4 in the third round.

But she clung on and went on win the next 10 games, locking out her opponent from the contest entirely.

He hit 15 aces and 31 winners in a commanding win over 33-year-old Zeballos, who was a top 40 player in 2013 but was playing at Wimbledon ranked a lowly 126.

South Africa's Kevin Anderson wrapped up his rain-interrupted match against Andreas Seppi on Court Two winning 6-3 6-7 (5) 6-3 6-4. I play well here. Most of the time I just play video games. Experience won the day.

Van Uytvanck said that she was confident heading into her match against Muguruza stating that she felt like in a zone in second and third sets.

"She played big today".

Van Uytvanck plays Estonian Anett Kontaveit in the third round on Saturday. "She took a lot of risks, and it worked for her", I also think that my level today was not where I wanted it to be. That's why she could develop that kind of level. It was tough for me facing an opponent having a great day, and the match is slipping out of your hands a bit. "I've never been to the third round at Wimbledon", Edmund said. Falling 5-3 behind in the first set, the French Open champion looked unsettled as she struggled for consistency.

"It was a tricky match".

"Yesterday he was playing so good, hitting the ball so hard that I couldn't do anything", Pella said. "I was not feeling my rhythm from the beginning".
